Northampton Open Mediais creating Public and Community Media Arts
Thank you! This is our most foundational support level. If every person in our community supports us at this amount, we will have enough support to run NOM into the foreseeable future.
Our goal is to empower and resource the entire community to "speak media", and in doing so provide a broader palette for them to create and forge their identities in their own fluency of expression.
We'll send you a cool NOM sticker for supporting us at this level!
A foundational value at NOM is PLAY. Activities that involve play support open welcoming spaces, create community resiliency and are just plain fun.
We believe engaging in play helps people to learn, to express, and to live in a state of new possibilities.
We'll send you a cool NOM sticker and a special mention on our web site for supporting us at this level!
About Northampton Open Media
As we re-launch with a new name we are also inviting you into our long term plan to change the way we are funded.
Right now community media is under attack. Proposals at the federal and state level could change the way we are currently funded and the impact could be a dramatically reduced budget. At the same time our media and technology landscape is changing, leaving us with uncertain and likely reduced future income streams
Despite all that we see a future where Northampton Open Media’s award-winning programs, creative community events and in-depth trainings continue to thrive. We want to continue bringing you the best of what community media has to offer. We want to become more financially independent so we can continue serving you. And in order to do that we need to ask for your support.
Can you make a contribution today?
When you become a patron you’ll be supporting hyper-local media and arts, community expression, local programming and educational opportunities.
Thank you for supporting this nonprofit, independent, 501c(3) organization.
We are a physical public makerspace. We are a legal street art multimedia wall. We are an economic development organization. We provide opportunities for voices that do not have other outlets. We provide free services to the community, local nonprofit organizations and the professional multimedia community.
Almost everything at Northampton Open Media (formerly NCTV) will remain free. Help us continue to be a community resource for this city and region.
